Greetings and best wishes from Universiti Teknologi MARA, Melaka, Malaysia.

We are glad to announce that we are organizing the Research, Invention, Innovation and Design exhibition or RIID2013, an international exhibition of innovative higher learning research initiative which is also the 5th Research, Invention, Innovation and Design Exhibition and Competition to be held on

16 - 17 December 2013

at Taming Sari Hall, Universiti Teknologi MARA Melaka, Malaysia.

To consistently produce innovation, IID competitions can act as one of the ideal channels or medium to ensure students, lecturers, administrative officers and the public to exhibit or display their products or prototype as well as new ideas that contain commercial values. The first IID held at UiTM Melaka level took place in 2009. It successfully exhibited more than 37 products. To continue the innovation culture within the campus community, IID competitions should be maintained. The number of participation showed an encouraging response with 45 products being exhibited in the following year. The third IID known as DERIA 2011 and the fourth IID was given a new facelift as RIID2012 with an estimation of nearly 350 products that competed.

The IID competition this year is known as RIID2013 with the theme ‘Optimizing Innovation for Global Commercialization' . The theme is chosen as innovation is important towards commercialization for the new high income nation in the global map.


•  To display research, invention, and design from various institutions (IPTA/IPTS) that can be commercialised for global benefit.
